  1. In the championship he only played 90 minutes 6 games. 13 games for over 70 minutes. Then under 20 minutes the other 5 games. So not a bad return for us. He scored some important goals, but personally was expecting a much better player for the money and his past goal scoring record.
  2. I actually seen it and thought it was very unsporting and bang out of order. Expect him to be on the bench. Depending on Ayala, expect the team to be something like. Randolph shotton friend gibson ayala or fry. Maybe Christie rb and shotton from rb to cb. Will see. Howson leadbitter traore downing braithwaite assombolonga or gestede
  3. Boro fan here. Got knows how we have lost one of them 3 home games, nevemind all 3. All 3 games we should of been out of sign by half time. Especially v villa. Fulham we lost to a pen that was never a pen. Players missing almost open goals in both matches. Brighton we played well first half and were the only team in it, missed chances again. Then conceded a deflection off Murray’s knee on 90 mins. Hopefully our luck changes.
  4. Boro fan looking in purely out of interest. Rhodes in the championship for us, his record wasn't too bad. He was at the club with 19 games to go. Started 12 games, scored 6 goals. He played 18 games in total with subs appearances. Of the 18 games he played 90 minutes in 6 games. He was signed to score, add fire power and get us over the line. He did score some important goals. He was ok but wasn't much difference between him and nugent quality wise. He was never getting a look in with negredo in the premier league and is not premier league quality. He played 1161 minutes total
  5. From someone who works for our club (Boro) and confirmed at a after dinner speech. The fee agreed on after the initial loan period was 10m. Payment wise, it was 10m if you went up or 5m this season and 5m next year if not promoted.
  6. Running costs, a stadium and training ground don't run for free. Maintenance, running costs and security. As a comparison 2014/15 yours were at 5m and ours 6.8m the same year. The away end was changed, new indoor pitch at the training ground 2015/16.
  7. You are only allowed to loose 13m (permitted FFP costs, transfers, wages ect). Promotion Bonuses don't count, and transfer add on's. Nugent 2m, Downing 2m ect. That was nearly 13m with players Promotion Bonuses. Stadium and Academy (we have a CAT A) dont count either, Cat A minimum spent on it is 2.5m. Stadium costs and training ground were around 10m. Losses under FFP are 13m and that is set in stone. The football club has separate accounts.
  8. You would most likely be quoted more than the 15m Newcastle were quoted last summer. He only had a year on his contract at the time and has signed a 4 year deal last summer.
  9. Gibson said he made mistakes last year and "wants to smash the league" so yes. He said we lacked pace and penetration and would address this. We have a good core group of players who have been there and done it. Dimi, Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Clayton, Leadbitter, Forshaw all played over 30 games in the promotion season. Defensively we were sound last year and had the best goals against in the top 5 leagues the promotion season. Last year we lacked creativity and attacking intent. We know how hard this league is but I expect we will be there or there abouts.
  10. We had the same thing when we were promoted. We didn't have parachute payments. Gibson said we wouldn't break FFP when everyone said we would when we signed Rhodes, downing ect. He was proves to be correct. We have also sold over 20m + on fringe players, Espinosa 4th choice cb, Husband 3rd choice left back, Stuani a bit part player, Rhodes to you, Fischer who hardly started a game. We still need at least a winger and a cb and maybe a full back also. Or 2 Centre backs if Gibson goes, going by WBA managers comments today, he won't be going unless a top 6 side comes in
  11. We will buy both haha On a serious note, I am surprised Ripley (Stuart Ripley's son) hasn't been given the chance. He was League one GK of the year on loan at Oldham last year. Still only 24 so young in GK terms.
  12. Bamford will get his fair share. I know it hasn't worked out in the premier league sides. But he was championship player of the season last time he was at us. Think he got 19, playing mostly on the right in a 4-2-3-1, which monk also plays. Up front I would also take him over Rhodes any day of the week, he also has better all round game and has a lot more pace. Add braithwaite on the left or no.10 or up front. Ramierez got 7 in 18 games from no.10 when on loan at this level. That's without assombolonga, stuani, gestede. Quite excited for the season starting. Still looking at another w
  13. No, noises coming out the club is he is staying unless a top 6 club pay £25m + Newcastle enquired about traore but put off with his £20m valuation. Ramierez is looking like he has made up with the squad and looks to be staying. Played both our friendlies so far. De roon may leave if someone pays his 10m relegation release clause. But we have 6 players for 2 centre mid positions. Clayton, leadbitter, forshaw, guideoura, forshaw and de roon.
  14. To be fair, when we didn't have parachute payments when we were promoted. Delighted with The signing, we needed pace and a different striker to gestede, stuani and Bamford. Braithwaite and Britt bring that. Just need to keep hold of Gibson at all costs.
